I’ve always admired people who do one thing in life and they do that one thing well. It’s even more admirable when they still have that same spark of passion in their twilight years. Maritime painter John Stobart is just such a man.
In this episode John talks about the development of his career from that first painting sale he made as a student at the Royal Academy. John gives us a window into the meticulous research process he goes through in the creation of his historic maritime port scenes. He also talks about his Worldscape video series he produced for PBS.
One of John most admirable achievements is the established The Stobart Foundation, which is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help support emerging artists who paint from life. You can find more information about the Stobart Foundation, and apply for a grant, at stobartfoundation.org.
John’s work is represented at The Kensington Stobart Gallery in Salem Massachusetts.
